"Dancing Spirit" by Nikkie Wilson

Image used with the permission of the artist. More about Nikkie Wilson and her work can be viewed at her website here.

Arms up, stick in hand, wobble back and forth like a rocking horse. Face fanned out to catch more sun. something wild exists in the reverberating asymmetry of this child, this beast, this tropical tree-spirit. He stands immersed in rusty reds and sandy yellows, while sparks of turquoise ring out like the unseen Cardinal's call above the forest's baseline hum. What does he think as he laughs and runs and waves that stick? Or is he simply a blind force in the rushing, passing moment?


  1. Adore the textures and colours of this print.

  2. sorry, to be frank, I don't like it...

  3. Um, Qudusiyyah, care to elaborate? I mean, typically if I don't like a work of art I only voice that opinion if I have some constructive comments to offer. Obviously not everyone likes every work of art, but saying so for no reason other than to just say so seems to serve no purpose other than possibly hurting the artist's feelings.
